Independent candidate says he’ll fight for Niagara Centre
Presenting himself as an alternative to what he calls the party establishment, Steven Soos says he’ll be seeking the Niagara Centre seat as an independent in the provincial election
“I have spent my entire political career from the time I was 19 fighting for those who did not have the means to fight for themselves.”
Previously, Soos was acclaimed Trillium Party of Ontario candidate in 2017 for Niagara Centre, for the federal Green party in the Niagara Falls riding in 2015, and ran for Ward 6 city council in Welland in 2014. He has since abandoned the Trillium party.
“I want to continue to be a voice for those people young and old, dealing with a mental health and addictions issue. Unlike my opponents, I speak from experience. I am just an average Joe with the same challenges as my fellow residents. Niagara is facing a health-care crisis, and the best way to deal with the crisis is to elect individuals who have accessed those essential services and know first-hand how they can be improved.”
Soos said when election day comes, he wants people to think very carefully about who they want to represent them at Queen’s Park.
“We can get more of the same from the PC/Liberal/Green/ NDP brain trust, or we can elect someone who has no other interest then representing his fellow residents, neighbours and friends at the provincial stage.”
